Walk Across America

Walk Across America

I saw Dmitry walking along Lee Highway on my way to DC yesterday. He was walking on the shoulder, facing oncoming traffic – as you should so that you can react if you see one swerving at you – pushing a running stroller full of gear. He had running tights on, the kind you see marathon runners and serious athletes wearing, and on the front of one was a sign. The only word I made…

An American in Sydney – Travel Tips

An American in Sydney – Travel Tips

Liam Barret is a guest contributor – and an American living in Sydney. From the Harbour Bridge to the Opera House, New South Wales, Australia, is loved for its urban appeal. In particular, visitors are drawn to Sydney’s sprawling metropolis and it’s exuberant attractions. But the state is brimming with natural features that rival even the best of the human-made. From hippie beaches to snowcapped mountains, this is a guide to some New South Wales’…

Southeast Asia | Photojournal by Madlén Hjelmroth

Southeast Asia | Photojournal by Madlén Hjelmroth

We have a few friends who travel like we do, and find interests in the things we do. We always like to see the way they capture the human experience of a place, and are fortunate to have friends as Madlén Hjelmroth, a photographer and fellow citizen of the world, residing in Göteborg, Sweden. We tend to not think about the daily lives of people in other places around the world. We either assume their are…

Lambic Belgium Experience

Lambic Belgium Experience

There are many ways to experience a place. Certainly, you should try to get a glimpse into where a place began, and museums and historic buildings, monuments, and squares are great for helping you get a better understanding of where you are. The food, the music, the people (and their culture), each individually can be enough to fill weeks of your time in any place, depending on how deep you wish to go. This trip,…

Mountain Life – Sperryville, Virginia

Mountain Life – Sperryville, Virginia

We’re back in America. Jess came back six weeks sooner than me, and I spent that time in Europe, working on our book and visiting with family. After a year we find ourselves in a village, with a population of 342 (give or take) according to the 2010 census. A year ago we left the capital of the United States. In that time we went to 88 cities in 24 countries, circling the world twice. So…

Nesting in Sperryville, Virginia

Nesting in Sperryville, Virginia

The distance around Earth is 24,901 miles (40,075 km). Between June 1, 2014 and June 10, 2015, we traveled 61,657 miles (99.227 km) – we circled the earth once moving east, then again moving west, and covered enough ground to nearly circle the earth one more time. And now….we’ve stopped.     Life after travel is not the same. You no longer look at anything as if that’s simply the way they are, because you’ve seen that they…

Bohemian Paris

Bohemian Paris

When you arrive at a train station in Paris, either coming from the airport or by rail from a nearby city, province, or country, you can feel the spirit of the city. Paris is a place of revolutions, artists, and existential philosophers, and for a period, the favorite city and second home of the great American writers. Paris is a bohemian city, so different than the rest of France that people joke about the Parisian…

Street Art in Paris

Street Art in Paris

Paris has produced some of the most prolific, though not always the most renowned, street artists. SpaceInvader may be the most famous, his works plastered on many street corners, giving a commentary on the area, the building, or the street itself.                   Clet Abraham, a French artist who now lives in Florence, has a good amount of work displayed around the city as well. He usually turns…

Street Art Ljubljana

Street Art Ljubljana

Ljubljana may be my current favorite city in the world. Of course, I tend to fall in love with a lot of places, having sworn in the past to move to Amsterdam, Koh Lanta (Thailand), Bali, and Plovdiv (Bulgaria). Who would have thought I would find yet another paradise in Slovenia. Though Ljubljana is the capital and largest city in Slovenia, it has only 300,000 inhabitants, and even that number surprises some of the locals….

Bali – Back Roads, Rice Fields, and Volcanoes

Bali – Back Roads, Rice Fields, and Volcanoes

If you’re ever pulled over on a motorbike or in a car on the island of Bali, either make sure you have an international license, or tell them you left all your documents in your room. There are roadblocks all around the island, often looking more for foreigners to site for violations, though content to catch any infraction of the law. There are two ways to pay – either go to court, or pay the…

Street Art | Budapest

Street Art | Budapest

Street art is as important as the art you find displayed in galleries. Not all of it is good, and much of it is not, but the streets are not the artist’s studios where creativity explodes with no bounds. We;, except for the law anyway. But we’re talking art, so F#&% authority, convention, and rules. When we first arrived in Budapest, we took a bus to a train from the airport into the city. The…
